This is important to pay attention to because anything that makes it from the runway into school hallways is bound to soon be seen down the aisle of a wedding. As a wedding plan it is important to know all of the latest trends for fashionista brides.

Fashion News: Tom Ford introduces fall collection via YouTubeLos Angeles Times (blog)Ford famously stopped having public fashion shows a few seasons back. [Cut] The latest TV-inspired fashion line is debuting at Kohl's.

 

This is importatnt because this could be the wave of the future. The future is going to be based on the experiences we have in front of a screen rather than in person. I think this is interesting because Tom Ford is a major clothes designer if he's doing it I'm sure more designers will be soon to follow.

London fashion week finds fun in teaspoons and telephone dials - The Guardian

London fashion week finds fun in teaspoons and telephone dials - The Guardian | Event planning and the fashion industry | Scoop.it
The GuardianLondon fashion week finds fun in teaspoons and telephone dialsThe GuardianLondon fashion week may have grown up in recent seasons but it has not lost its sense of fun.

 

London fashion week kicked off this week! This is important to the world and to London because it brings in so much revenue for the area. I think that is important because it is also a very different type of show. Fashion week is bizzare and should be studied by those who want to be an elite planner.

Wedding expo slated for Feb. 11-12 at Bangor Mall. Winter and spring are the time for proposals and wedding planning.

 

This interesting  because these planners decided to choose a venue very different from the normal expo center. This wedding expo will be held in a mall where brides can gather and this could also help boost economy. I think events like this are good for everyone!

This is an important article to both the fashion and wedding world because the Hunger Games is said to be the "it" movie of the year. If there is to be a fashion line as this article states it can take over all aspects of the fashion world, I'm sure that their will be not only clothes designers taking note of styles in this line but maybe also bridal designers. I also believe that some of the more adventurous people out there might be theming their wedding off of this movie, afterall we did see this with Twilight and Harry Potter.
